When Trump toots his horn, he's usually making outlandish claims that appeal to bigots and guys who wish they could get away with saying and doing what The Donald can. He's used some "politically incorrect" language about certain ethnic and racial groups, but he always adds the caveat, "Some of them, I suppose, are good people." He never explains what "good people" are, but probably not "murders and rapists" like their stereotyped cousins.
Just as Donald is critical of some groups, he is also very complementary of others. You may recall his comment about who counts his money. "Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day."
Those short guys with yarmulkes are Jews. Donald loves Jews. His daughter is married to an orthodox Jew, whose family also happens to own the other half of New York City that isn't owned by The Donald. It's almost like one of those marriages the European aristocracy used to join their territories and status.
But it is a very good marriage. She converted to Judaism and even keeps Kosher. They are expecting their third child and seem to be a very happy, well-grounded family. Donald may not have always been a good husband, but he has been a good father.
Despite his good qualities, Donald Trump is not qualified to be President. His only political experience is spreading his money around to candidates on both sides of the isle. Doesn't that make him one of those dreaded rich people who buy candidates? So now isn't he trying to buy the Presidency for himself?
POTUS (President of the US) is not the same thing as being a CEO or a business owner. The Executive branch is just 1/3 of the division of powers written into the Constitution. Congress makes the laws, the President approves (signs) or rejects them, and the Judicial branch (courts) enforces them.
The President cannot walk into the Senate and point to a Senator and say, "You're Fired!" Voters in the 50 States "hire" their Senators and Congresspersons, not the President. We may not like the representatives from other parts of the country, and they might not like ours, but that's how elections work. The name of the game is "Compromise." Not everyone gets everything they want, but most of us get some of what we need.
My speculation is that Trump really doesn't want to be President. That would be a demotion wouldn't it? He'll play this role until it gets closer to the Primaries, and then he'll decide to support the candidate who has the best chance of winning (probably not JEB!).
Then he'll negotiate a plumb position in the Cabinet, probably Secretary of Commerce, where he could negotiate trade agreements, encourage innovation, and foster operational excellence. In other words, "Make America Great Again." At least I hope so.
